The Fish Sniffer - Rain and Weather Cannot Keep Trout Anglers From Hooking Up!
Rain and Weather Cannot Keep Trout Anglers From Hooking Up!

Written By: Danny Lloyd, December 21, 2013
Species: Trout
Location: Rollins Reservoir, Scotts Flat Reservoir,

It's been a wild ride in the Sierra foothills lately with big rain, wind, and run off. At foothill lakes like Rollins and Scotts Flat the result has been stained water, yet anglers that hit the lakes between storms are still hooking fish while bait fishing and trolling.

"I was off work the past week, so I've been able to do a good deal of fishing at several lakes including Rollins and Scotts," reported Jason Pleece. "Rollins got a little muddy after the first storm. It's still somewhat stained in areas but clearing up. The trout continue to bite. I've gotten several rainbows while trolling flashers and a work or top lining rapalas. Most of the rainbows have come around the power lines on the Bear River side of the lake."

Forum member David Thompson recently visited Rollins with his brother and caught a lot of trout! Most were caught on worms and a few on Panther Martin spinners.

All of the fish were caught anywhere from 4 feet to 20 feet from shore and the bite really took off around 9am. They finished the day with catching over 10 fish and one rainbow came in at over 3 pounds!
